What makes a great community?

We are honored to have had the opportunity to partake in the creation of the United Way video for the National Development group. The video was created to highlight the spirit and values of National Development which is to build communities that are, “more than a building…the creation of environments that have a deep impact on the way people live, shop, work and interact.”

We made it happen by working alongside our friends from Boston Virtual Imaging, Kyle Carrier, Director of Video Productions, and Matt Murphy President & Creative Director. Together, we created a five-minute video, that shows employees of all levels at National Development answer the question: “What Makes a Community?” The video demonstrates how many National Development employees give back to their communities, including by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, the Big Sister Association of Boston, and More Than Words.

The video also shows the National Development community building playhouses for two military families just outside their corporate office, demonstrating their commitment to giving back to those right in their own backyards.

We are also proud to announce the video was presented at the 26th Annual Real Estate Leadership Breakfast presented by United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, where the Norman B. Leventhal / Edwin N. Sidman Real Estate and Building Industry Leadership Award was presented to National Development and Charles River Realty Investors for their outstanding commitment to giving back..
